Teaching Opportunity in Nepal
Ever thought about sharing your teaching skills with a disadvantaged community, travelling in the Himalayan mountains?
After our family experience in 2017 some schools in Nepal have been in touch with us looking for further assistance.
Some remote schools in the Gorkha region of Nepal are looking for volunteers to assist teaching their staff and students English.
This is an authentic experience (with a direct contact, no agency involved) in a small community and could suit either an individual or a family group.
If this sounds like something that appeals to you or any of your friends, please get in touch with me and I would be more than happy to share more details of this amazing opportunity.
